The reviews for this are relatively poor. This looks like the type of book you're better of waiting to pick up at a garage sale or thrift store or cheap eBay purchase (even if slightly used) for $3 - $5.

Thanks, already had the force awakens and last jedi. I think these books are great. Lots of conceptual art, development, etc. and I think a must have for fans who want more. I think most of the negative reviews are from people who were expecting it to be a picture book of scenes from the movie.

Thanks! I am severely lacking in good coffee table artbooks at my newly purchased condo, and so this will work nicely! Smilie

Did not like this movie much, but the artwork is fantastic. There's this one from the books I particularly enjoy

Of what we could have had instead of the hot garbage we received.

For the price it's worth it! I also wasn't the biggest fan of the movie but the artwork and visuals have always been on point. Thanks OP.

It's sad when the supporting merchandise for a movie are much better than the movie itself. It wasn't the worst movie ever made, but damn, it was such a lazily conceived conclusion to 42 years of saga. Part of me wishes that those rumors floating around that Disney is thinking of de-canonizing the sequel trilogy or relegating it to an alternate reality timeline were true and they just started over with Lucas at the helm (with supervision!). But, Carrie Fisher's gone, Harrison Ford's not interested, Mark Hamill's probably had enough of SW, and it would be unprecedented. Just write it off and move on, perhaps fixing some of its weaknesses via future works that put it all into more comprehensible context. I mean, Snoke in a huge pickle jar? Conclusion of ROTJ was meaningless? Genocidal psychopath becomes a good guy because his mom REALLY loved him? Puhleeze.

You know you go read bad reviews instead of just guessing right? 😂

Most of the poor reviews were disappointed that there is zero regarding Exogel or Sidious.

Many like that these Szostak 'art of' books provide something about what creators were planning before the movie even started filming. Speculation about the lack of Palps runs rampant, but it wasn't to eliminate spoilers since the books release was delayed until after the movie. It's one reason there are theories about alternate versions/cuts.

I did read them. I saw some were upset that they didn't have "art from the movie." But I acknowledge that a lot talked about the lack of those things. But again the focus of these books are preproduction and concept art, not art from the final cut of the film.

Great deal. Can't wait to see Ralph McQuarrie's "Star Wars Art" go under $100
